2020: The Year of the Hacker
Ransomware’s minimum annual global revenue is $8 billion
Here’s your answer to the question, How much did ransomware make in 2019? This is a large sum, and 2020 is projected to come in even higher!
There was a 79% overall increase in malware-targeted businesses in 2019
Attackers have realized that businesses will bring them a higher revenue than an individual person. Even though the use of ransomware has decreased, the attacks are now more targeted manual attacks, according to a 2019 report on the state of malware from Malwarebytes.
If your system, or even individual computers, become infected than that can really hamper their productivity and even force you to replace computers.
As a business, the chances are you’re hosting your own website. If your system becomes infected, there is a very real chance that your website be forced to shut down. This means that not only will you be losing money from missed transactions, but you will also lose customer trust and certain viruses can often do lasting damage to a system.
Viruses can slow down personal computers to a crawl, and make working on them practically impossible. This can cause a lot of wasted time for your employees, and can often bring your entire business to a standstill.
